in between

out here
on the edge
the dream tugs
wanting its due
visions spiral
caressing thought
waves crash upon the veil
a rhythm of its own
the siren’s call
as reality
washes out to sea
smashing on the rocks
of time
left behind
waiting on the shore
caught in between
this world
and the next
awareness ebbs
in the wasteland
being somewhere else
lost in the freedom
of insanity
drifting on
the exhalations
of the moon

    Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, dear heart. I sensed that Dani’s piece would move something deep in you and clearly it did or else unknowingly you were in the same space. What a magnificent closing line – “exhalations of the moon” – I would love a line like that to ever occur to me. This takes me into memory and I love it….and you!

  • sweetheart..big apology.. cell phone screw up when i upgraded.. my number wasn’t rolled over correctly to new phone…. i’m sorry for worrying you..all is right now and i’ll try calling at a decent hour…. i don’t think 6:30 am is a proper time… ha…. as for your words here…. thank you so much…… this is actually a piece i had started months came to me in that state of drifting back and forth between being awake and falling asleep where the mind is in “limboland”… i was trying to capture that feeling of drifting through levels of consciousness……… talk to you soon my dear.. i hope all is well…. love..b

    Hi Butch… Much of your work is so abstract that it goes sailing over my head… but this one I’m enjoying thoroughly… Long ago, you taught me about the ‘in-betweens’, and if I didn’t say it then, I’ll say it now… I’m grateful!
    Write on dude! :)

  • ha… in my head my work always seems resoundingly clear lee…but i thank you for your candor… and i am very glad that this one spoke to something in you….. thank you so much for your kind words…… love and light….b

    I’m stunned at how easily your words guide me to a ‘place’ i only have to sense.. and how good it feels to be there..even if only for seconds.. xx

  • isn’t that a wonderful place lizzie… it sounds funny but i am so glad that you are able to go there and love it too….. there’s such a sense of freedom from body and spirit in those precious moments.. at least for me.. thank you for your beautiful words……. much love……..b

    There’s more to this than we know, I’m thinking….it sounds like you’re exploring and trying to come to grips with what’s happening there (feel free to cyberly-smack me if I’ve said something I shouldn’t or if I’ve got this all wrong)…just hoping the best for you and those you love…((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))

    Your genius is in your heart. You know?
    And we’re very fortunate that you’re someone who can open that heart, to share.

  • i just plain love you………. thank you so much……. talk soon………xxxxx…..b
